Publisher's Summary

Everyone has a purpose. And, according to Oprah Winfrey, 'Your real job in life is to figure out as soon as possible what that is, who you are meant to be, and begin to honour your calling in the best way possible.' That journey starts right here. 

In her audiobook, The Path Made Clear, Oprah shares what she sees as a guide for activating your deepest vision of yourself, offering the framework for creating not just a life of success, but one of significance. 

The book’s 10 chapters are organized to help you recognize the important milestones along the road to self-discovery, laying out what you really need in order to achieve personal contentment, and what life’s detours are there to teach us. Oprah opens each chapter by sharing her own key lessons and the personal stories that helped set the course for her best life. She then brings together wisdom and insights from luminaries in a wide array of fields, inspiring readers to consider what they’re meant to do in the world and how to pursue it with passion and focus. 

Renowned figures such as Ellen DeGeneres, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Brené Brown, Elizabeth Gilbert, Eckhart Tolle and Jay-Z share the greatest lessons from their own journeys toward a life filled with purpose.

The Path Made Clear provides a beautiful resource for achieving a life lived in service of your calling – whatever it may be.

Critic Reviews

"Fans of Oprah Winfrey’s TV show, or more recently her two podcasts, will have this title on their playlist for months. She dips in and out of interview clips with trailblazers across various industries with her characteristic warmth, wit, and candor. Winfrey draws us close in this inspiring topical guide focused on self-motivation. We feel as though we are sitting in the living room with her and Deepak Chopra or any of the dozens of guests featured in snippets scattered throughout the listening experience. At times, the transition from one conversation to another can feel slightly jumpy, but those who favor nuggets of wisdom over breadth of discussion will appreciate the ground that she covers in 20-minute sections."

Very relatable and inspiring for all across all streams of life.

Hearing Oprah narrate and talk to all the wonderful ppl was very surreal. I thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful knowledge being shared. Hope to share it further!
Not only did I find it very inspiring but also relatable. All of us have faced questions at ourselves and at life’s various curve balls. Very humbling to hear them share their experiences. God bless everyone!

#bookreview

✨There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to HONOR YOUR CALLING.
It’s why you were born.
And how you become most truly alive. —Oprah.

💙THE PATH MADE CLEAR
by
OPRAH WINFREY @panmacmillan

Genre: Self-help
____

✨I read a sample of this gorgeous book on @amazonkindle first.
Then I downloaded the book on @audible & heard this book atleast twice before deciding, I need to get a hard copy too!

💙This 2hr 55min book is definitely gna take more time to finish than stated above.
From the very start, it is gna engulf you & make you ponder over your thoughts & actions.

✨what will you get❓
- 10 chapters, perfectly sorted.
- beautiful picturesque images
- Experience right from the horse's mouth i.e. Oprah herself
- quotes worth penning in ur journal
- words/ lines u wanna underline, highlight & ponder on
- raw wisdom/ interview clips from people like #deepakchopra #suemonkkidd who share their inspiration & lessons
&
- a clarity- a clearer picture of life, of awareness, of yourself.

💙who should read it❓
- ppl who wonder what life is all abt
- who ponder over the purpose of their life
- readers who want to learn from the experience of sooo many ppl
- ppl keen on self discovery.

🎈what did I learn❓
Life is very short. I cannot make all the mistakes in the world & then learn my lessons & by that time, my time would be up.
I am privileged to have this human form & I need to up my awareness, my consciousness by learning from the wisdom of others, in addition to my experiences.
The first seed 🌰in this is the urge or need to realise your purpose. The want to know your calling.
FOLLOW YOUR INSTINCTS.
Work on urclf.
The only person who can ever help u is YOU, urclf.
The purpose keeps on changing as we keep on learning & moving ahead. It's not static.

✨The narrative is in Oprah's voice & of her guests, themselves.

💙💙 If you have faith, even as little as a mustard seed, you can move mountains.

✨P. S. I have met a lot of ppl who shun away from the name of non-fic, spirituality, self help or discovery.. My only thought is..they are not ready yet.

Until & unless, u urclf have an urge for greater awareness, no one can help u.

Thank you Oprah


When i first came to know about this book during its launch, i knew it then itself that it would show me light.
Of all the things i have learnt from listening and reading Oprah over the years, the one thing that has always kept me going is that ..."God can dream a bigger dream, than you can for yourself". Always on the quest to find my purpose here, and wondering how life has nurtured me into the woman i have become, the one thing i know for sure is that every minute, hour & day, every moment of joy & sorrow, every journey to success and failure  has made be a better person, a person more closer to purpose, a person i love to be.
And this book is just like opening the window to warm sunshine 🌞, right at the very moment you are feeling chilly.

Its like those days you question WHEN? & WHERE?...and the Universe whispers...Its Now, Right Here.

#mustread for everyone who knows there is a purpose, you may not find your path yet, but you will know which one is not yours. As #oprah rightfully says - "Sometimes knowing what you dont want is more valuable than knowing what you do."

Life Experiences!!

Narration was as usual the "Oprah Special"!!
The book is a one stop junction for all the life coaches, business leaders and world leaders life experiences and what to say; Oprah does have her own ways with life and this book is the means to share them with us.

Extremely insightful

I found the book so uplifting. Each “ah moment” I have personally tried to hang onto over the years is consolidated into one book. What is great is that your purpose is always evolving and not shaped into one thing. Oprah shares her personal experiences in each chapter it made the book relatable. It was a good touch to have short but insightful chapters. I liked the fact that numerous teachers were featured with the key take aways. I’m am listening to it again. Thank you for guiding me to the light when darkness was everywhere. This will become my go to book for clear understanding. Love, love, love! Read this book if you want quick guidelines on huge life lessons!

Relearning to trust yourself and know in your heart that what you feel is right. I needed that affirmation, to be reminded of our connection to God and the universe. That our path is embedded in our spirit.

When Oprah said, “Epilogue,” my heart sank. “It’s over?!” I thought... There is so much insight in this book that it is clearly meant to be listened to over and over again. It’s true brilliance and ultimate truth.

Re-hashing The Secret

Like most people, I have a great deal of respect and admiration for Oprah. There is no denying her empathy, determination, and her charisma. I expected this book to be filled with actionable advice or, at the very least, some ideas that might inspire and motivate me.
Nothing could be further from the truth, though: the book is basically a compilation of metaphysical platitudes in the voices of multiple celebrities, clipped from interviews Oprah did in the past. The old clichés like "everyone has a God-given gift", "God gave us all a purpose" and, of course "put something out into the universe and the universe will reciprocate".
This is exactly the same as "The Secret" and these books have nothing to offer to someone like me.
I expected real advice from an successful and charismatic person that is greatly respected around world, instead I got 3 hours of soundbites and superstitious nonsense.

not life changing but ok

Some parts of the book were more interesting than others... mainly those in the final chapter. There are quite a few references to God so if you're an atheist like me... it was a bit of a turn off. It also jumps around a lot with different people providing their views.

Love this, but too much god nonsense

Love Oprah. Loved her last book (WIKFS). And I really enjoyed this book. My only critique is how much god bothering there is in this book. She uses clips of interviews from people she’s interviewed for her podcast. Including people like Joel Osteen, the super rich televangelist famed for his hatred of gays and his love of cold hard cash.

The Path Made Clear is full of inspiring words of wisdom. So many treasured experiences are shared here, that have been embraced and valued for the lessons they bring. The honesty and vulnerability expressed in these pages are encouraging as much as they are powerful teaching moments that can open my eyes, heart and mind to opportunities that I may have previously considered impossible.
